Twenty-One Return for Final Day of WSOP Event 30Tweet Share
Twenty-one eager players will sit down at three tables in the Las Vegas Rio Casino this afternoon with their sights set on winning the Event 30, $1,500 No Limit Hold’em tournament. At stake will be one of the coveted World Series of Poker bracelets and a prize pool that climbed to $3,231,900, thanks to a field of 2,394 runners.
This huge event has not only generated a large overall purse, but excellent individual amounts as well. The remaining twenty-one players are assured of a minimum payday of $16,644, with the top ten places paying out as follows:
Tenth Place: $33,191
Ninth Place: $42,790
Eighth Place: $55,814
Seventh Place: $73,719
Sixth Place: $98,605
Fifth Place: $133,574
Fourth Place: $183,345
Third Place: $254,996
Second Place: $360,906
First Place: $581,851
The final day’s activities will start at 3:00pm Las Vegas time, with play starting at Level 20. The blinds will start at 6,000/12,000 and the antes will be 1,000. The blinds and antes will become a factor for the players as they continue to climb, meaning that those remaining will have to plan a strategy to avoid getting overwhelmed as they rise.
Christopher Gonzales leads the remaining players as they battle to set the final table and crown a winner. Gonzales bagged 1.3 million chips at the end of play yesterday, well above the average stack of 513,000. The leader’s finish in Day Two has surely raised his hopes for a run to the title today, which comes against a remaining field of players that is a largely unknown group.
